Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Friendship


Welcome to another contribution to the weekly blog meme hosted by The Broke and The bookish.  This week they ask us to share 10 books about friendship.   I’m going to try, but I don’t think I will be able to come up with 10 books.  I tend to read romances, be them paranormal, urban, contemporary and then there are the dystopian which sometimes have strong friendships, but the ones I tend to pick are one character out to change society.  Perhaps this explains my lack of real life friendships, I’m not reading about good examples.  So here we go I am going to scour my Goodread read list and fingers crossed I can come up with 10…

Top Ten Books I’ve read about or have strong friendships.

  1. The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2)Book one in The Dark Tower series is mainly about The Gunslinger character, but in book two Roland is joined by three companions that will join him on much of his journey to find the dark tower.
  2. Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs (Jane Jameson, #1) Sure this is a romance, but the lead character has a great group of girlfriends that have her back throughout this four book series.
  3. Guardian's Grace (Guardians of the Race, #1) Each book in this series features another character from this close-knit group of heroes. It is a great example of people coming together and forming a family.
  4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) I see that this book/series has made several lists today, so why not mine too.  Three friends a fight of good over evil to stop he-who-must-not-be-named.
  5. Infinity (Chronicles of Nick, #1) This is a fun YA series that features Nick and his awkward group of misfits that are constantly finding themselves in the center of trouble.
  6. Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, #1)  Great series that is ending soon.  At the heart of each book is Rachel, Ivy and Jenks as they often come together to get Rachel’s butt out of what ever trouble it is currently in.
  7. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)  Saw this on several lists too.  Good JF series, read it a while ago, but has a similar feel to Harry Potter but not quite as good.
  8. Born of Night (The League, #1)  This series has at its heart a group of rebels that are there for each other and fight for the greater good.  Think Star Wars crossed with Robin Hood with a dash of Star Trek thrown in.
  9. Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1) Each book in the series features a different Brother in this group of strong alpha males who are out to protect the human and vampire communities from lessors.
  10. MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search For A New Best Friend And to end it one NF book about a woman’s search to find friendship.


Can’t believe I made it to ten!  Sorry I didn’t comment more on the selections but I am running up against the clock which is telling me I need to get ready for work pretty darn soon.  I look forward to seeing the titles you all select, maybe I can expand my horizons a little and find some good examples of friendship to learn from.

    1. It is a ya spin-off of her Dark-Hunter series, in an alternate timeline. Good on its own, but great when read with the other series. Going to work its way up to lead character having his own book in other series. Look forward to seeing what you think if you give it a try.
